I was very excited to receive word from one of the world's largest photography competitions: 35 AWARDS. (Web | Instagram | Facebook)
For the 2nd year in a row, some of my images won awards in the competition.
This year, over 123,000 professional and amateur photographers from 173 countries participated in the annual photography competition and submitted a total of 444,000 photographs. The photographs were judged in three different stages and 119 million votes were received. Ultimately, 50 professional photographers from 50 different countries selected the winners from the photographs that received the most votes.
Based on the awards that I won last year, I was the judge representing the U.S. in this year's competition. Of course, I was not able to judge and vote on my own images. Additionally, all images that make it to the final round do not show the photographer's name so none of the other 49 judges had any idea which image(s) were mine.
I am honored and grateful to announce that:
The awards were given based on these 4 of my images:
Dueling Bull Moose in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, USA
Grizzly Bear in the Wild Flowers, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, USA
Grizzly Bear 399 and her Four Cubs in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, USA
This image was selected to be included in the Annual Catalogue
Grizzly Bear and Salmon in the Tongass National Forest, Alaska, USA
